Heat Wave Ahead!

Plenty of sunshine in SNE today with highs climbing to 85-90 degrees this afternoon with breezy SW winds. The Cape will stay in the 70′s all day with abundant sunshine. A great beach day all around. Dewpoints will begin to climb into the mid 60s during the afternoon making for a more humid and uncomfortable feel to the air.

Breaking Down The Humidity With Storms & Downpours

SW winds continue to pump oppressive humidity into New England with dewpoints again ranging from 70-76 degrees. Hazy sun and clouds are warming temps up again into the 80′s, with the potential for a few Lwr 90′s this afternoon. I do not expect the kind of heat we had yesterday due to a few more clouds. Plus a welcome breeze today will pick up this afternoon with gusts over 20 mph to help to stir the stagnant air and make the day more tolerable.
